She keeps her eyes downcast; although she is young and beautiful, she is modest about her beauty.

Craig is a new addition to Guruve's gallery this year. We liked his elegant ladies very much. We were also pleased to see he has managed to resist the (almost overwhelming) influence of his world-famous father Edward Chiwawa.

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is a particularly good sculpture medium, as it has a very even internal structure of small grains of rock; it is dense and has very few flaws. It is the favoured medium for Zimbabwe's finest sculptors.
